How to Box Golf Clubs for Shipping
A set of golf clubs should be packed carefully for shipping. (golf clubs image by CraterValley Photo from

Modern golf clubs are constructed of durable materials such as titanium and graphite, but damage during shipping is still a possibility. You can prevent substantial damage to a new set of golf clubs by wrapping each club individually. Scratching or denting the club head or bending or cracking the shaft is avoidable when the proper packaging technique is used.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Box 4 feet in length
  • Packing tape
  • Polythene foam roll
  • Newspaper
  • Tape measure

  1. 1

    Be sure the size of the box is sufficient to hold the clubs to be shipped. The box should be long enough to accommodate all of the golf clubs, yet not so large that the clubs cannot be secured by additional padding.

  2. 2

    Clean the clubs thoroughly if they have been used. Applying tape or polythene foam to dirty golf clubs could cause scratching. If the clubs are new and still wrapped in the manufacturer's packaging, keep the packaging intact.

  3. 3

    Wrap each club in polythene foam, covering the shaft and head completely. Apply packing tape to the seams of the polythene foam for additional protection.

  4. 4

    Place the clubs in the box, alternating the direction of each club to ensure proper spacing. Placing all the clubs in the same direction can cause inequitable weight distribution in the box and lead to potential damage.

  5. 5

    Fill any open areas in the box with crumpled sheets of newspaper for additional padding to prevent the clubs from sliding into each other during shipping.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not allow the packing tape to touch the club shafts because the tape's residue can be difficult to remove from steel and graphite.
